Cumbria To Host Tour of Britain Stage in 2021:
Cumbria will once again host a stage of UK’s elite road cycling race – the Tour of Britain 2021.
The announcement that Cumbria will feature in the UK’s biggest cycle competition has been welcomed in the county.
The race is set to return to the county in September 2021.
As a result of the event, the county’s tourism sector will get a boost following the dreadful year we had in 2020.
Originally, the race had been planned to take place for September this year but had to be postponed due to the pandemic.
Having the race stage in Cumbria will shine a spotlight on the area internationally and bring with it a lot of tourism for the event.
